Bus got some complaints at Palakkadu, and from there i had to travel by an ordinary Traveler arranged by them. I got very late reaching calicut (Around 1 PM)
The bus was held back at Valayar for around 90 minutes owing to some issues related to the RC book. As I was on my way back home to attend my grand mothers funeral, this delay was totally unacceptable.
over all bad experiance.. committed to reach by 8.30.. and reached by 11.00 .. very bad experiance... and very rough behavior from staffs as well.
I happened to miss the bus which was supposed to come to vandalur at 9:35. But came and left at 9:30 itself.. Since there wasnt any other bus after that I happened to chase the bus with cab and then catch it 25 kms after that. Which coated me.
